* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[spoiler:The return of Nicole in Season 3 also resulted in her win by AmericanIdol vote, though by all accounts, Laura or Derek should have won the season if her return didn't happen. Laura had another chance to compete in Season 5, which she won without question. Kinda makes you wonder who would have won Season 5 if Season 3 hadn't happened the way it did, and it's especially obvious that the producers realized their mistake in letting Season 3 be decided that way, because neither the option of giving an eliminated contestant the chance to return nor the AmericanIdol style finisher ever happened on ''Face Off'' again.]]

* ExecutiveMeddling: {{Defied|Trope}}. John Woo only agreed to direct the film under the condition that he would have greater creative control than he had been allowed in his prior Hollywood films ''Film/HardTarget'' and ''Film/BrokenArrow1996'', both of which had been accused of suffering this. Nevertheless, the studio still argued with Woo on multiple cases, such as demanding he take the slash out of the title and wanting a younger actress to play Eve Archer, but Woo stood his ground.



* TheRedStapler: Some looked high and low for a Filipino Kriss-styled [[ButterflyKnife Balisong]] like the one Castor gives to Jamie.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original script had the same high concept, only it was a sci-fi action movie set in the future. The setting was changed to the present day so that the plot could also explore how Archer's and Castor's dislike for each other affects those around them, especially after they get each other's face.

The original script had the same high concept, only it was a sci-fi action movie set in the future. The setting was changed to the present day once John Woo signed on, so that the plot could also explore how Archer's and Castor's dislike for each other affects those around them, especially after they get each other's face.
